Vegetarians is so cute (and stupid)
Don't you just love it when cute celebrities treat us to steaming bowls of vegetarian stupidity? Like this little nugget from country caterwaulerer/American Idoler Carrie Underwood:
"There was a traumatic incident that made me stop eating beef. ... And it hit me that these cute little animals that were running around playing would become someone’s dinner. Eating them made me feel guilty."
My grandfather raised cattle for more than 50 years. (He was walking across a pasture he was leasing when, at 79 years of age, he dropped dead of a heart attack.) Until I was 15-years-old, I spent a good portion of my summers workin' on my grandparents' farm. I can tell you for a fact that the only time a cow is cute is when it's still supping from a nipple bucket. 'Bout the third or fourth time I had to hose cow crap off of my shoes is when I came to the astute conclusion that cows ain't cute or funny, or good for anything besides giving us steaks to eat and whole milk to drink.
Methinks the lack of protein in Ms. Underwood's diet has made her a blathering idiot. I'm afraid the same can be said of most vegetarians, indeed.
